This week’s Sunday Giveaway is for a brand new show that comes to us from the streets of San Francisco. Sousepaw: A Baseball Story, written by Jonathan A. Goldberg, won the “Best of the Fringe” Award at the San Fran Fringe Festival in 2011, and has wound its way across the country for a limited run here in New York Cit-ay!
Sousepaw is my favorite type of play: two actors, one set, and a whole ton of secrets. (I’m still reeling from David Harrower’s Blackbird from a bunch of years ago.) This two-hander is about . . . well . . . duh . . . it’s about baseball. More specifically, it’s a true story about the greatest left handed pitcher of the “deadball era” as he tries to crawl out of the bottle for a much-deserved comeback, and the woman who helps/hurts him.How do you get to go to see this sucker?
Sousepaw is about a sport. Sports are one of the most dramatic live events to watch, but they rarely make it to the stage (which has a lot to do with the demographics of our audience . . . and the demographics of our playwrights). What sport do you think could be dramatized on stage in a unique, dramatic and maybe even with a bit of spectacle?
Let me know what you think, and one of you lucky sports fans will win two tickets to see Sousepaw!
